The Sunset Motel Information


Find out why the Sunset Motel has been #1 on TripAdvisor for 5 years running! Centrally located to all 3 forests, The Sunset Motel (downtown) is charming, kitschy, affordable, smoke-free & clean with great southern hospitality and a sense of humor! Free Wi-Fi, fridge, microwave, flat-screen TV & coffee maker in every room. Kitchen units, an apartment with a view, plus a private cottage are also available.

We offer a bike wash and allow in-room equipment too. Come and experience a very unique lodging experience that won't eat your wallet!

The allure of the open road is calling you. Exploring America’s best small towns, checking out local diners and shops and meeting locals is thrifty, nostalgic, and back in fashion. So dust off the old hard-case suitcase, throw in some casual wear, a tooth brush and your cat-eye sunglasses and hit the road for an adventure retro-style, where the nostalgic simple get-a-way vacation is just a few miles down the road in Brevard, North Carolina. We at the Sunset Motel celebrate the best of the classic roadside motel and hotel experience. We’re the real deal: clean, comfortable rooms, friendly hometown staff, chairs outside your door so you can visit with neighbors. And yes, for all you city folks, we do have free wi-fi, cable, fridge, microwave and coffee makers. Our owner, Lori Roberts, bought and lovingly "retrovated" this fun property in 2011 and is constantly making improvements, many of which are guest suggestions.
